Where does this part go?

I found this strange item in my Airstream when I bought it, and can't figure out where it goes. I checked the manual, and there was no mention of it. This is a drawing/diagram of it.



Trichotometric Indicator Support


Thanks!

Looks like one of those trick drawings that change as you stare at them...

I Know!

That's the rear bracket support to the secondary disgronificator.

I think you're missing a piece, or a few screws.

Actually I think it's the part that makes a Cyclo work 10X faster.

Tounge weight compensator

That part moves the axles forward or backwards, so that you can keep the tongue weight constant.

It does it automatically, the first time you slam on your brakes at 145 miles per hour.

Dinoburb's got it! An Olympic Blivet

blivet

/bliv'*t/ [allegedly from a World War II military term meaning
"ten pounds of manure in a five-pound bag"] 1. An intractable
problem.

2. A crucial piece of hardware that can't be fixed or replaced
if it breaks.

3. A tool that has been hacked over by so many incompetent
programmers that it has become an unmaintainable tissue of
hacks.

4. An out-of-control but unkillable development effort.

5. An embarrassing bug that pops up during a customer demo.

6. In the subjargon of computer security specialists, a
denial-of-service attack performed by hogging limited
resources that have no access controls (for example, shared
spool space on a multi-user system).

This term has other meanings in other technical cultures;
among experimental physicists and hardware engineers of
various kinds it seems to mean any random object of unknown
purpose (similar to hackish use of frob). It has also been
used to describe an amusing trick-the-eye drawing resembling a
three-pronged fork that appears to depict a three-dimensional
object until one realises that the parts fit together in an
impossible way.
